of president obama's state of the union pat buchanan? >> he did pivot back toward the jobs and the economy but overall this was a very libbal brail speech, something we have all heard before nothing new in it and a dead on aarrival speech. he is not going to get the minimum wage, not going to get the assault weapons ban, not going to get amnesty, not an awful lot of the things he has in there. he is appealing to his base and appealing to what he sees as the majority of the country, which probably does support most of what he said. it was a very political speech but in terms of what is going to be abe complished i don't think it was at all relevant. >> eleanor? >> it was in tune with the country. he is going to get immigration reform, something he can call a victory on guns, probably universal background checks and legislation to curb gun trafficking, the gun that killed the young girl in chicago came from mississippi. and there are these well-traveled gun running routes. and that is going to be a focus of legislation as well. he is going to get enough, i would seven say he is going to get
you my plan. but, first, here's my take. president obama's state of the union address presented an expanded vision of smart government to create jobs and revive the economy. it had many important ideas in it. yet, he lowered his sights on the single policy that would both jump start the economy in the short term and create the conditions for long-term growth. infrastructure spending, having tried several times to propose infrastructure bills of around $50 billion, just 0.3% of gross domestic product, the president now further scaled back proposing a fix-it first plan of that repairs 70,000 bridges that are literally falling down nationwide. maybe he thinks this is all he can goat through the american house, but will place a band aid on america's growing cancer of failing intrastructure. a 2009 study of u.s. infrastructure by the american society of civil engineers concluded that we need $2.2 trillion to be spent over five years to bring the nation's roads, bridges, railway tracks, airports and associated systems up to grade. let me make three crucial points. first, this is the b

comes days after rubio delivered the republican response to president obama's state of the union address. when drones are used to save the lives of american soldiers we are glad to have them. but what about when they are in our own skies spying on us. whether we have committed a crime or not. that is a question that authorities are wrestling with, while playing catch up with this technology. we look at the complicated question of what to do with drones. >> the skies across america could soon be welcoming more drones. the faa is seeking proposals from cities, states and universities to create six test sites for unmanned aircraft systems. the sites will allow them to develop safety standards that will allow drones to be fully integrated into the national air space by 2015. the drone industry said they make good economic sense. in the next three years after the faa figured out integration, we could see 70,000 jobs be created in the industry. >> the coast guard uses drones for surveillance on ice sheets in alaska and others were used during a border dispute. they will be monitoring pipelines

are seeing mostly red states deciding they want no part of the obama care and blue states are opting in. they will get federal funding to start their plans, but there is concerns as to whether the dollars will go far enough. red state governors say there are not enough dollars there. this was your idea mr. president and you run with it? >> already tennessee's governor has said and i am saying that the plan has aggressive federal time lines and lack of flexibility for the states misguided federal policiless and chris christ i and florida's governor said we will have no part of it where is the people left that are going to need to be covered by insurance? >> that's the most important point. exactly where does it leave the low income people in the red states that are going to not have access to the same type of coverage, good type much coverage as they should. i think matt is right when he breaks it down in policy and politicings. when you look at the states that are deciding not to set up their exchanges. many of them sued the federal government and wanted to get rid of obama care. we hav
, your calls and comments on "washington journal." then, harold rogers of kentucky. and, president obama's state of the union address and the republican response from marco rubio. >> we have a habit in this country of glossing over presidents. we have decided that some people are bald eagles. they all have to be treated as if they are symbols of the country. what that means is you have a smoothing over of their rough edges. there is a feeling among modern presidents that they have a right to a certain veneration. that generation will be located in their presidential outlook. even if they are gone, their children and former allies, their lieutenants who live longer, they continue this. in many ways, they are even more ferociously committed to the legacy, not only because it involves them, big -- but because the old man is gone. the problem is, what does the government do, because it is responsible for these libraries, when you have a flat president? >> are two of our conversation with timothy natalli. tonight at 8:00 p.m., on c- span's "q&a." this morning, a political roundtable with davi
benefited. you heard president obama in the state of the union talking about raising minimum wage to $9. probably won't happen. that tab low of seeing democrats stand and cheer at the $9 and republicans sit and say essentially they wouldn't want that -- chris: gained them. >> gained them. they have a credible argument. chris: but they looked like 47% haters again. >> you hear from smart republicans we have to get over obama. we're never going to run against him again. at the state of the union they didn't seem to be over obama at all. it was not just boehner but how much rubio's speech, forget about the water, how much rubio's speech sounded like an election year speech. chris: the country may be all afraid but republican office holders seem to be down the line from cornyn, all of them, to the right wing threat. unless you're particularly nasty to the president, they're afraid you're his friend. charlie crist and gene shsubmit. smile or hug the guy, dare touch him, will he kill you. >> that's why he went so light on the immigration speech. he knows to get a bill, he can't be too close t

one manufacturing crisis to the next. we can't do it. >> president obama 66th minute state of the union address this week, the first in his second term. joining me now with analysis is tony t fratto. michael beschloss is a presidential historian. tony, let me kick it up with you. what do you think? can we get an economic policy that doesn't stress consumers or scare investors, as the president said? >> it's hard. actually in this environment. talk to people about this all the time and try to help them understand what's going on here in washington. really our manufactured crises in a lot of ways but some of them are just structural to our system so, you know, the president talks a lot about republicans bringing things to the brink with things like the debt ceiling, which i've been very vocal about republicans should not try to have that fight on the debt ceiling. but we have a budgeting problem in washington where, you know, the senate can essentially just walk away from the game of doing a budget in washington. that's never happened before. and now it's happened three years

of nebraska and every state in america is required by law to implement president obama's new federal health care law. the financial impact is enormous. it will cost more than $170 million in federal and state funds over the next eight years to implement just the technology and administration required by the new federal health care law. and even more significant, it will cost the state of nebraska $72 million in new general funds in this budget for the growth of the current medicaid program as a result of the new federal health care law. that's $72 million in new general fund spending for president obama's new federal health care law -- money that should be going to state aid to education or higher education. i am also very concerned about federal economic policy and its impact on nebraska. unlike the federal government, we don't spend money we don't have. we balance our budget in state government and our family budgets by controlling spending, not by raising taxes. nebraskans are very careful and conservative in how they spend their money. this conservative approach has led to positive nati
, and i think that is the republican universal health care plan but by the time it cape um, obama was for it and no republicans were for it. and even olympia snow in our state, who made a real effort to work on a compromise position, eventually bailed out, i income part because of the pressure to conform was so great. >> as you remember, repeal and replace? repeal and replace. that was the mantra after it passed on the republican side. why didn't we ever see a plan to replace? obama karr? -- obamacare? really because it involved government action on a scale that the republicans could not accept. and this gets back to what i was saying earlier. for many of them, this is not about trying to figure out how to serve -- how to have health care. what they're worried about is this feeling that government infringes on personal liberties and creates dep dependence on the population and everything we do is to be resist is, and that is why the capacity to try to cross the aisle is so difficult because we are basically talking about individuals in very different world views. now, i want to go
to obama. i am lost there. i cannot wait to see the state of the union. it is a standing ovation every 10 seconds because they do that every sill law balance. sill labelle. less nukes which is perfect because iran is getting them. the gas is through the roof and he will talk about the goal. i love the environment and drive an electric car because i am a golfer. >> liz, obama won the election so he can be a little aggressive. why not? that's what you can do. is there a risk of becoming too partisan? >> i think they should get rid of the state of the union address. i think it is a fake thing and a distraction. we live for a -- we lived for a century from 1801 -- andy can correct me, 1801 to 1913 and the president wrote a letter to congress. and then it hit truman. truman televised it and lbj put it on nighttime television. it is a waste of time and a distraction. we don't need it. it is like make work. it makes the president seem like he is doing something and he is getting things done when he is just talking again. he is on another national conversation. it makes them feel they are getting
? >> with no success whatsoever and one of the things that they repeatedly stated, which obama actually said was, we have got to raise the level of public debate in this country and let it be our legacy that we are raising the level of debate. do you feel, looking at the next four years, do you feel hopeful? do you feel like we are fighting fighting -- i mean wrestling with 15 years ago and they are having the same discussion about it that we are now having this week. >> well, some issues but the reason why i wrote the chapter on gun control is because that is so essential to some people's image of what it is to be an american, is that it depends on where you are. my wife and i diana who is here tonight, we have this old farmhouse that my parents bought and it's up in rural maine. maine has lots of guns and a very low murder rate. so try to persuade anybody there that gun control works. i think it's wholly different thing in a big city and the inability to understand across the aisle and it's although slippery slope arguments on both sides, slippery slope arguments i hate because it suggests that y
